  • About the event

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxYouth@Payyambalam, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@Payyambalam event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

    Why should you sponsor?

    TEDxYouth@Payyambalam is the first community-based event organised in Kannur, Kerala. It is curated by a group of college students in an attempt to uplift the community of Kannur.  As a town, Kannur is at the intersection of it all, the T-junction of faith and scepticism, the convergence of local ideas and substantial realities, and the seams of dreams untold and unheard, all to watch the metamorphosis of a town, a community and it's people. At TEDxYouth@Payyambalam, we hope to unearth the stories behind this shift of paradigm, to educate, encourage, inspire, to spark conversations, and perpetuate this movement of creation, wonder and ethics. 

    Diya Isha

    I think of myself as a work-in-progress, requiring constant revision, additions, omissions, and editing. If I got stranded on an island, I'd probably be flipping the pages of Kafka while sipping on a large glass of peach ice-tea. I'll eventually get bored and plan a successful escape route. Amidst this process, I'd probably cry along with the clouds aligned at the edge of the horizon. I am a poet, not a translator and seek to find meaning in the smallest of stories sitting across me. As a centennial who still loves dropping a letter into the red-post-box, I enjoy studying psychology and labelling Freud amidst being awed by him.
